Sometimes I get ambitious and make homemade doughnuts. These particular doughnuts I learned how to make from a class I took on Craftsy. Check out their selection of baking classes here: Online Baking Classes. I have completed Simple to Sensational Doughnuts (where I learned to make the doughnuts I’m writing about now), Miniature French Desserts, and Classic Croissants at Home. I have a couple more that I have yet to complete but can’t wait to try, Danish Pastries from Scratch and French Pastry Shop Classics. You can expect to see some posts of my results when I finish! I recommend any courses by Colette Christian or Jenny McCoy since most of the courses mentioned above are taught by Colette and the doughnuts course is taught by Jenny. 😊
(I also have some sewing courses on the go, but that’s a post for a different category!😉)
Back to the doughnuts!
These particular doughnuts are a deep-fried, glazed and filled doughnut. The first step was to make the dough and cut the shapes.
Next we heat the oil.
Then we fry our doughnuts, flipping once until a nice golden brown.
While the doughnuts are cooling slightly, make your glaze. I went with a dark chocolate ganache. You want to glaze your doughnuts while they are still a bit warm. Let the glazed doughnuts cool completely. Meanwhile you can make your filling.
I chose to do a strawberry jam type filling. It was too thick to properly pipe in though, so next time I would maybe blend it up a bit to make it less chunky. Pipe some filling into your doughnuts through the side with a long piping tip.
Then enjoy your delicious doughnuts!
